Our pure, delicious spot prawns in seawater are harvested sustainably in cold, clean waters off British Columbia.
Upon harvest they’re hand-packed in tubs with seawater, and flash-frozen to preserve their fresh-caught quality.
Their name stems from the bright white dots that mark their shells; it’s equally accurate to call them spot prawns or spot shrimp.
Some of our prawns may include an extra special treat – a clutch of oil rich red roe on their bellies. This can be gently captured with a spoon to use as a garnish, or simply removed and discarded with the shells after cooking.
Spot prawns (Pandalus platyceros) are abundant and the fishery is well-managed and sustainable. There are very low rates of “by-catch” because the prawns are caught with small individual traps instead of large trawls and dredges.
